The Necromancers: A "Tragic" Tale

A few days ago, my friend Elizabeth GoldenThistle picked up a help request on Wizard101 Central. She was to be helping someone with a random Azteca boss, and one of the Mercs101, Crazy Daisy, would be coming.

Elizabeth showed up at the sigils about ten minutes before the scheduled time. Soon, a friendly wizard named Angus showed up. The two of them chatted for a while, until Elizabeth noticed that it was time for the run and Daisy had not yet appeared. As it was customary of the Mercs to show up early, she was worried and began to wonder if she was at the wrong boss.

She had since explained to Angus her reason for being there, and she turned to him and said, "I think it's weird that Daisy's not here yet."

Angus, somewhat surprised, said, "Oh - I'm Daisy. I'm just on my boy wizard." Embarrassment ensued.

Once I had two boy wizards on my account. One was Luke SkyWalker, a diviner, who I deleted because I decided his name wasn't funny any more. Then, I was reduced to one: Daniel DeathBlood, a necromancer and the star of his own movie. Now I have zero boy wizards on my account. I like it better this way. Less confusion, less awkwardness, and, well...my new girl necromancer was too awesome to refuse. I present to you my short story, a winner of Central's short story contest.

The Return of the Theurgist

Just over three months ago, I posted on this blog for what I believed to be the last time. The spiral had become dull and boring for me, and I didn't think I'd play ever again.

That decision was probably for the best at the time. I really needed to devote my mental energy to editing. That said: I still read some of the blogs I'd followed, mostly Emma's and Destiny's blogs. At first I was sort of indifferent, just reading because I wanted to know what they were up to (skimming many of the posts) but slowly I became more and more engaged in reading the blogs, even the completely spiral-specific ones. I missed it.

I began to discover that maybe I did need a break. The magic might have left back then, but now that I saw all the new updates and everything's fresh again, it's returned. Sophia EmeraldBlossom is back in the spiral and here to stay.

Just a week ago or so, a shocking discovery came to me as I was browsing the blogaverse. I was the only completely wizard blogger left. This created a sense of duty that hastened my arrival.

Coincidentally, this is also my second wizaversary. I received a silver dragon statue (congratulations to everyone who got the awesome mount!) and it looks all pretty and shiny. I am also going to write the Greatest Treasure more actively and try to make my posts even better.

If you're not reading this, I really don't blame you. I just wanted you to know that I'm back. (I will continue to be semi-active on the Treehouse.)
